Please help..I seem to have no options left
Posted on 2009-05-01
Hi ...My computer has crashed..Lsass.exe (not :LsassE.exe) error comes up
Application error" LSASS.EXE The application failed to initialize properly (0Xc0000005).
I'm a paying member and after asking on here and only getting help from 1 person who later himself abandoned my question, i have spent 2 entire days and am ready to give up, do a complete reinstall and lose everything.
Before i do, i figured i would go ahead and try the recovery console despite its complexity and the fact i am not a tech girl just because it would be devastating to not only lose these days awaiting responses but everything on my computer.
Could ANYONE please give me some assistance...At this point i dont even care if you are an "expert" ...This has been a wonderful site over the years with AMAZING genius techs but now, what good is an expert if i cant get my questions answered especially when i am a very loyal member and i have paid this site hundreds of $ over the years.
The problem im having is i CANT do a BART bootup disk, lost all day trying, and now that i am about to just try recovery console i see this message from MS in their site about recovery console:
* Warning * Do not use the procedure that is described in this article if your computer has an OEM-installed operating system. The system hive on OEM installations creates passwords and user accounts that did not exist previously. If you use the procedure that is described in this article, you may not be able to log back into the recovery console to restore the original registry hives.
Well aside from the fact i dont know a registry hive from a beehive and need help to do this repair, it appears i CANT even use recovery console because my XP cd packet says OEM on it??
I would REALLY appreciate a thorough answer or at least several possible option ideas if i have any. I know you guys have a tough thankless job many times. But i have done all the basics and i cant keep going back and forth only to get ignored again so thats why i ask for as much help in your first email. Look up my last ticket...i always do exactly what the expert asks..i only ask not to be abandoned for a day because i use my computer for all my work and ive lost 2 days now and I am under incredible deadlines that i have missed.
Many many thanks
p.s. I have run mem386 + 9 passes no problem and testdisk and no problems found..
